Heather Poussard


I am a first year PhD student working under the supervision of Dr. Amitava Chowdhury. I completed my undergraduate degree at Simon Fraser University in British Columbia before moving to Kingston to begin my graduate studies at Queen's in 2020. My research looks at citizenship and immigration in the British Empire and Commonwealth in the 20th Century. I am interested in the connections and interactions between members of the Commonwealth that shaped late-stage British imperialism and the Commonwealth of Nations.

Outside of history, I enjoy playing field hockey, knitting, and complaining about the weather in Ontario.
